All The Apple-Shaped Ladies

JAG jeans?  Yes.  Yes.  And again, yes.

All you apple-shaped middle-aged women like myself, get thee to Zappo's.  If you are between sizes (again, like moi), size down.  You will note that these jeans are actually pull-ons - there is a soft band of (barely) stretchy fabric just above where the waistband should be.  It may look weird in the picture, but it is not at all noticeable - once you throw on a sweater or a blouse or even a T-shirt, the jeans look exactly like all the low-to-mid-rise styles that are popular with our daughters. And you won't have that darn metal snap or button digging into your menopausally endowed stomach, as it does with normal jeans. Or is that just me?

Now, I KNOW I am sounding shallow and self-centered lately, going on and on about my jeans and my waist size as I am wont to do; but people, ill-fitting jeans are as demoralizing as a bad hair day - if I don't have jeans that make me feel like a million bucks (or, at least, $54.99), my whole day feels lousy.  If that makes me shallow, so be it.

But I'm thinking it just makes me human.

  1. I'm almost convinced--I have my pair all picked out. The only thing holding me back is knowing I really DON'T need any new clothes because I almost never go anywhere, and I'm still unemployed and thus, quite poor. But the moment I think I might need a pair of jeans I'm ordering these!

  2. I don't know...I can't get past the fact that an elastic waist jean makes me think of either maternity jeans or that I'm a toddler. Do you really love them that much?

    I found Ann Taylor Curvy jeans to be just right for me, without making me feel old. With the Curvy I can size down 1 size. My waist has always been much smaller than my hips, proportionally. On sale, they're pretty much what these cost.

    1. Those probably work better for you because you are pear-shaped. I tried them a couple of weeks ago, but the JAGs are WAY more comfortable. And they don't FEEL like elastic-waist jeans - they feel dressy and tailored. LOVE THEM.

  4. This is the second post on these jeans that I have read this week. Did they send you a pair?

    1. No - if it had been a sponsored post, I would have told you that! I got the idea of trying them from Anna's post at An Inch of Gray, however. Her post was not sponsored, either.

  5. Hmmm. I'm pretty happy with Old Navy Curvy Fit or Gap Flare jeans, but I will have to try on a pair--I am actually both an apple and a pear :)
